About



Welcome to Where Your Treasure Is. This is a blog about Homemaking. I love to  inspire other women to be creative and to enjoy their home and family.  I can't resist vintage cookbooks, pretty aprons, natural foods, vegetable gardens, essential oils, pencils, paints, fabric, dishes, tea cups, books, sea shells, grandchildren and my own beautiful family; all of which are little bits and pieces of this blog, and big bits and  pieces of my life. I have been on my life journey with my best friend and husband of 37 years, with the addition of 7 children and 6 grandchildren along the way. They are my inspiration, and my great reward. I hope you will enjoy some of the creative ideas, crafts and the many family favorite recipes from this blog, and find some treasures to help you build a happy home.

The wise woman builds her house, But the foolish tears it down with her own hands.
Proverbs 14:1


 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

 Matthew 6:19;

  2. Gorgeous family! Your cup overflows!

    We have eight biological children and have been married 32 years. Sometimes I have to pinch myself at the goodness of God in my life. He has taken our imperfect efforts and done exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think.

    Blessings,

  3. Hello Pam,
    I came over to visit you after you had been to my place "she graces her home" you have a lovely place here. I too live in Colorado, and was able to homeschool our two daughters in the beauty that surrounds us here.
    Your recipes look delicious. I look forward to more visits with you.

    Have a beautiful blessed day.

    Joy! Debbie

  4. I have 5 beautiful children and was married 20 years at the time of my divorce. I had always anticipated growing into a strong, loving, faith-filled family such as yours. I don't know what went wrong. I long for what you have. Enjoy. It is truly a treasure :)

  5. Nancy,

    Your comment touched my heart. I prayed for you today. You know, it is a good thing to mourn the loss of a marriage (much better than to flippantly joke about it). My parents were divorced and, even though it was due to my dad's serial infidelity, he gave me a great gift over the years by mourning the loss of his marriage. My mother, on the other hand, was and is bitter.

    You have a testimony that you can share with others; fight hard to save your marriage!

    Praying for you,

    Jill

  6. Nancy and Jill,
    Thank you for your comments; they are precious and treasured. Nancy, I feel for you. We live in difficult times, and it can become even more difficult when divorce is a part of the equation. I grew up having divorced parents, and I know a part of that pain, having felt it for myself as a child and for my Mother. Blog land is a wonderful place to find encouragement, but can sometimes mislead others into thinking "so many people have perfect lives and I am left out… " ; I know this is true, because I have sometimes felt that way. My hearts desire would be to bring comfort and encouragement to people by sharing a little of our lives. I don't very often share the painful parts, but we have had our share of heartache; it doesn't make its appearance on my blog, because it is difficult for me to share. I appreciate your reminder to enjoy our family, because we sometimes forget the blessings right in our midst. You are in my prayers today. You are a special creation of our Heavenly Father, and He still has very important plans for your life. You are needed by those around you just by being you. Don't be robbed of the value of what you still have, and who you are. You are a treasure.
    Blessings,
    Pam

  10. Hi Pam,
    Just saw your blog as one of my traffic sources so I clicked. I hadn't been here yet (life is busy). Love your blog and I'll be back soon to visit more. Beautiful family! We're actually tossing around adoption, as of right now! Blessings.
